, host of "up with chris hayes" here on msnbc and melissa harris-perry, host of melissa-harris perry on msnbc. thank you both for being here. melissa, it does seem that president obama has shifted his tactics this time around and it's all about using his power. >> yes. in this case we have to remember that nothing has fundamentally changed structurally as these players. it's the same lame duck congress. the new 113 is not seated yet. the power in this case is really the power of percent situation, the ability to convey two things. one, that the american people voted for him based on the sets of issues that are now before the country on the fiscal cliff issue and, secondly, he has to be convincing that republicans will be punished at the ballot box next time if they don't come to a deal. >> but, chris, speaker boehner keeps arguing for cuts but the second time in as many days he declined to name any of the cuts that the gop would make. they seem to be on the defensive. they refuse to give any specifics on what they offer, any deal. republicans want entitlement cuts but often no specif

's an honor to be with you. thank you. keep up the good work. >> now i want to bring in melissa harris-perry, host of the melissa harris-perry show here on msnbc. melissa, thank you for being with us tonight. >> absolutely. >> what do you make of governor scott's refusal to extend the voting? >> this is clearly a tactic to suppress the vote, to suppress the vote that he believes will benefit president obama. it's the governor's attempt to steal the election. the only thing we could care about is fundamentally what is the will of the people? are the people who are voting, be are they legitimate voters? is it their right to cast the vote and do we have every reason to believe and it's absolutely true that it's the will of the voters to cast the vote and the issue of hours, one hour here or there, it's ridiculous for them -- for the governor to act as if this is a law & order issue. this is a basic issue of democracy. >> if people are standing in line, and as you know, i've been in florida half this week. if they are in line for hours, clearly they want to vote and then you start with saying th

-elect a black president than it was to-elect him in the first place? good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. good morning. i'm melissa harris-perry. i'm coming to you from our studio on democracy plaza at rockefeller center here in new york city. let's begin today by going back exactly four years, back to november 4, 2008. it's the day when a multiracial coalition of american voters, including those living in states that were once part of the confederacy elected this nation's first black president. it was historic. to paraphrase a vice president joe biden sentiment, it was a big deal. john mccain had this to say about the outcome. >> a century ago, president three dore roosevelt's invitation of booker t washington to dine at the white house was taken as an outrage in many corridors. america today is a world away from the cruel and prideful bigotry of that time. there is no better evidence of this than the election of an african-american to the presidency of the united states. >> senator mccain was right. that at no other time in american history could this moment have been possible. and eve

, melissa harris-perry, host of the melissa harris-perry show here on msnbc. earlier this week we saw grover norquist sharing his thoughts on america's recent political process. i want to remind everybody what he had to say. take a look. >> well, we just had an election. and the house of representatives was elected, committed to keeping taxes low. the president was elected on the basis that he was not romney and romney was a poopy-head and you should vote against romney. >> i'm not sure that was the overall theme of what romney is labeled now, but what are your thoughts on that and grover norquist's future going forward. >> what we have seen is basically in the election, the american people did something pretty extraordinary and surprising to a lot of progressives watching who have had a lot of anxiety post citizens united about the amount of money in the campaign. and we saw american voters being unwilling to either be bought or to be suppressed at the polls. what that means is somebody like grover norquist who is not an elected member of any legislative body, but who has managed to terrify

at the manufacturing facility in hatfield, pennsylvania. melissa harris-perry i think sasha and malia will get kinex roller coasters. could the president push those more than the tax cuts. i'm likening this to when dillon went electric. we are seeing obama play a hard ball that the democrats have not played with this current sort of republican party and it's most modern manifestation. what do you make of the messaging now, the fact he is going hard with one message only, which is about middle class tax cuts, he has dispatched his ambassadors to the hill with a plan that republicans found shall we say off putting? >> look, the fact is that nothing structurally changed in terms of the amount of power that this president has to cope with this congress except that he won re-election, right? but it's the same players, everybody's in the same seat, it's the same lame duck congress. there's no inside bargaining that is itself essentially different than it was a few weeks ago. the one thing he has and keep claiming is the public mandate around the election and go back and make sure the narrative is written
